Went deer hunting!

So i murdered my front end last night! 4 deer ran out missed all but one at 60 m.p.h. Retarded button head decided to end his life at the mercy of a 8000lbs truck! Took out the bumper,bumper cap,both fogs,headlight,tag bracket,and a/c condensor! Sad day for my never wrecked low miles 05'!

It's cheaper to hunt with a gun, at least in my experience. At least you hit the deer, nothing worse than your insurance agent saying you hit the ditch & rolled your truck because you were napping. Some hair and guts is a good thing & your comp should fix up your truck good as new. Best of luck with repairs. I can see about 100 to 130 deer from my yard to the pavement every night when I travel,in 2 1/2 miles so I have a little experience with the deer thing. crow

Exactly... I had on on a 91 chevy z71 and went car hunting. Totaled a ford contor ( driver side warped around the grill guard) totaled a 94 chevy (took off the front clip) and totaled my truck ( kinked the frame, killed the front clip). The girll guard was fine. I cut off the bolts and it went on my next truck. I have hit several deers as well. Used to live in deer country. Ranch hand is a heavy duty product!

Just got my estimate and its definetly cheaper to go hunting with a gun! $1,281.00 worth of damage, guy that owns the body shop is a buddy of mine so wont have to pay my deductable (which was only $100.00) and save some markup on the parts! So may get a few $'s for my pocket which is ALWAYS good! Parts will be here next tues. so wont have to run around with a f-d up front end for long!!!!!

AMEN to that one! Struck a fairly large doe one night last year coming back from one of my son's football games going about 70 and the only way I could tell I hit something when I got stopped was a patch of hide and a few loose hairs in the screen covering the fogs!
